CCO certification is valid for five (5) years.  Candidates must complete all of their recertification requirements during the 12 months prior to their expiration date.  This includes:

  • Passing the Written Recertification Examinations
  • Continuing to meet Physical Requirements
  • Compliance with CCO's Substance Abuse Policy
  • Compliance with the Code of Ethics

Candidates who can document at least 1,000 hours crane-related experience during their period of certification do not need to take the practical examination to recertify.  However, candidates who do need to take the Practical examination must do so before their certification expires.  There is no "grace period" after the date of expiration. Candidates whose certification has lapsed must take the full Written and Practical Examinations over again in order to be recertified.

The Tower Crane Recertification Examination consist of 30 multiple choice questions with a time limit of 45 minutes.

Recertification Candidates are allowed two (2) attempts to pass the Written Recertification examination before their certification expires.  Candidates who are unsuccessful after two (2) attempts must take and pass the regular Written Examination.

Certified candidates may take their recertification examination up to one (1) year prior to their date of expiration.  Regardless of the date of the recertification examination within that one year period, the new five-year certification period begins from the date of expiration of the candidate's initial certification.

[Note: Candidates who recertify more than 12 months prior to their expiration date will have their new expiration period begin immediately, not from the end of their current certification period.]

Recertification examinations are available at regularly scheduled test administrations.  Candidates wishing to recertify should contact the Test Site Coordinator who set up the initial certification administration.  Candidates whose employment circumstances have changed should ask their new employer to schedule a test administration.

For more information about recertification, please contact CCO's Recertification Department at (703) 560-2391 or via email at
